Mobile

Mobile traffic currently represents 35% of total web site activity for the average Independent Grocery Retailer and growing. ShoptoCook designs sites in responsive web design (RWD) which offers easy viewing and navigation with a minimum of resizing across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors). With this new technology, the distinction between a web site and a mobile becomes less significant. RWD lowers cost and increases response time to design and technology changes.

When a stand alone mobile application is desired, ShoptoCook can do that too! Your choice; at home, on-the-go, or instore; solutions for every time and place.

  • Easy viewing of content, formatted specifically for every type of phone display
  • Consistent look and feel across all devices
  • New content, new phones, new strategy? Everything updated simultaneously - multiple displays, single point of contact for all interactive needs
  • Integrated or stand alone applications - whatever your need, ShoptoCook is your digital resource today and into the future. Reduce anxiety, focus on business, and let us keep you on the edge of customer facing technology!
 

Other Services

In addition to our core in-store, web, and mobile solutions, we also offer a number of other services featured below.
 

Coupons

Many shoppers do not plan ahead of a shopping trip, and others do not have time to visit their Retailer’s web site prior to every store visit. For many shoppers, the ReDē™ Kiosk is more convenient than either web or mobile to access digital coupons.

  • Hundreds of printable coupons in-the-aisle.
  • Interactive coupon center on the web.
  • Create your own coupons and deploy them to you website or in-store.

Newsletters

Email campaigns and eBlasts drive traffic to the web and in-store by providing timely, relevant content every shopper is interested in including the weekly ad, recipes, coupons and special store offers. The ReDē™ Newsletter application handles simple email blasts to more complex newsletters featuring custom banners, coupons, recipes, and promotions. The expanded content results in some of the industry’s highest open and click through rates confirming shoppers appreciate the content.

Graphic design is based on the weekly ad circular or holiday theme for the week. Robust email campaigns are designed to create incentives for collecting email addresses via contests and special offers for signing up. “Clean” email address are critical and if not managed properly can lead to mass rejections. Emails are run through a cleaning process to reduce risk and improve open rates.

Engaging content helps make meal planning and trip management in the aisle a little easier.

The recipe database contains 13,582 recipes with new content entered daily. Recipes come from trusted sources including Marketing Boards, Brands, and Councils.
